Most of us have a favorite phrase that we use over and over. We might not even know how often we repeat it until someone tells us about it. The Apostle Paul had a favorite prepositional phrase that he used many times – in Christ. Why did he use it so often? What did it mean to him? What should it mean to us?
Jesus gave his disciples a promise before leaving this earth. He promised not to leave them alone, instead sending a Counselor to be their guide. His role will be to convict the world of sin and to guide them into all truth. On Sunday we will consider how this is a statement of both grace and truth.

From Romans 15:14-22. It’s vital that we in the church continually remember the Good News as our basis for relationship with God and power for ministry.

John 1:1-14. One of the descriptions the Apostle John gives us of Jesus is that he was “full of grace and truth.” These two words could be opposites, but Jesus demonstrated their complementary relationship by bringing them together in perfect harmony. Let’s consider how Jesus established his kingdom through grace and truth and how we might reflect them to our world.
Our own Jim Goodson took the pulpit this week to touch on themes of grace, identification, and the humility of Christ in Luke 2:1-14.
